Advocating for

Defense Communities

Whether on Capitol Hill or at the Pentagon, ADC keeps you informed on issues affecting defense communities.

ADC is a leading resource of information for members of Congress, congressional staff and other federal stakeholders on issues affecting defense communities.

dcc-logoThe Defense Communities Caucuses,  bipartisan groups of lawmakers, provide a unified voice for the hundreds of communities that host active and closed installations, support those communities in their efforts to assist service members and their families, and raise awareness of the unique issues and challenges facing defense communities. The caucuses serve as a liaison among Congress, DOD and the private sector and advance dialogue on issues important to defense communities, such as defense infrastructure, innovative partnerships that strengthen communities and enhance installation efficiency, renewable energy projects, and military families/veterans support.
